Weekend Roundup – 10 Things Loved This Week

These are a few of our favourite things... for this week at least!

These are a few of our favourite things… this week at least. 


Shoes, Glorious Shoes…

The last few weeks have been fashion filled thanks to the gorgeous looks at London and New York. However, Milan for Cathy was all about the accessories. The shoulder bag is back with a bang although it’s been updated with studs and leather for grungy cool. However, it’s the revamp of the black stiletto that has her excited. Designer gods Bottega Veneta and Versace can take credit for this one…


Retail Therapy

Marie has been indulging in a little retail therapy this week and believes that if an outfit is suitable for both work and play then you don’t have to feel even the slightest bit guilty about splurging. This gorgeous tweed playsuit from Warehouse certainly fits the bill and now holds pride of place in her wardrobe!


Tasty Treats

Grace’s favourite thing this week comes courtesy of new team member, Alanna, who brought some treats all the way from Qatar for the gals. Baklava, is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup or honey, and tastes even better than it sounds.


Healthy and Happy

Michelle and Sue are still hard at work on their Girls Run The World campaign, spending 12 weeks in training for a 10km run. Their diets have changed as a result, so the happiness they usually reserve for cupcakes was evident this week when a lovely delivery of Kelkin products came in from Lidl. Breads, pastas, rice cakes, cereals and more are now happily sitting on the girls’ desks. If you want to pick up some for yourself, they’ll be in Lidl from Monday, while stocks last.


Sweets for my Sweet

Rebecca is a self-confessed chocoholic so you can imagine her delight when these white chocolate cake lollipops (they’re pretty much mini sponge cakes covered in white chocolate on a lollipop stick) arrived into the office. As well as being delicious, they are also in aid of a good cause, the Oesophageal Cancer Fund.

Ballerina in Blue

While on her days off, Úna took out the paints and dusted off her paintbrushes. She had a spare canvas lying about the house and decided to put together a quick painting of a blue ballerina dancing across the waves, inspired by Degas’ dancers and Van Gogh’s swirls!


On the bus, on the bus, on the bus…

Sue was pretty delighted that she made a huge discovery this week. After six months living in her new house, she finally found out that there is a bus which goes directly from her house to outside the door of work. It just took six months. Go on the 54A!​

Taken with Liam
Alanna headed to see new Liam Neeson flick Non-Stop this week. She thinks Liam Neeson is everyone’s dream dad and has a soft spot for movies in which he’s a badass but is also so gentle and kind. Swoon.
It’s Up To You… New York, New York!
Michelle is off on her holidays to the Empire State this morning. Having spent two happy summers living in New York, she’s ridiculously excited to be heading back to see old friends, consume ridiculous amounts of pizza and shop until she drops.
Nice and Nineties
We had a very enjoyable singalong in the office this week with some of our 90s favourites. We decided we’d leave you with this classic – have a great weekend!
